SECURITY OF THE RIGHTEOUS




In wait the watchful sinner lies,
in vain the righteous to surprise;
In vain his ruin doth decree:
God will not him defenseless leave,
to his revenge exposed, but save;
And, when he's sentenced, set him free.


Wait still on God, keep his command,
and thou, exalted in the land,
Thy blessed possession ne'er shalt quit:
The wicked soon destroyed shall be,
and, at his dismal tragedy,
Thou shalt a safe spectator sit.


The wicked I in pow'r have seen,
and like a bay tree, fresh and green,
That spreads its pleasant branches round;
But he was gone as swift as thought,
and, though in every place I sought,
No sign or track of him I found.


Observe the perfect man with care,
and mark all such as upright are;
Their roughest days in peace shall end:
While on the latter end of those,
who dare God's sacred will oppose,
A common ruin shall attend.


God to the just will aid afford,
their only safeguard is the Lord;
Their strength in time of need is he:
Because on him they stiff depend,
the Lord will timely succor send,
And from the wicked set them free.
